Pests

All of us encounter pests in one form or the other at home or our workplaces at some time or the other. They are very small insects that enter our homes or gardens and over a period of time, damage the structures, spread germs and viruses, and are just plain nuisance. Ants, cockroaches, wasps, termites, rodents, mosquitoes, flies are just some of the commonly known pests. If their menace is not tackled in time, they can cause serious problems. If you notice just one or two instances of pests, it shouldn’t be a cause for worry. However, if you see them on a regular basis, your house may be infested with them. In such a case, call us for a consultation and inspection.

Termites:

Termites or white ants can cause extensive damage to the wooden objects, doors, and, windows in our homes and offices. As a result, they can even cause structural issues. Worse of all, they are hard to detect till the time they have inflicted serious damage. If your wood sounds hollow upon knocking or has swelled unnaturally, there is a chance that the object has a termite infection.
